In the Cloud
Moving your data into The Cloud opens a world of possibilities for the way your organisation works. Free yourself from the constraints of purely local systems and discover the benefits of moving your software and data online.
Audit & Strategy
The Cloud offers a whole range of benefits, from reducing your hardware costs to increasing the software available to every member of your organisation. Our Audit service will allow us to review your current IT systems, consider how they match your current and future IT and software needs. We will then be able to identify how moving aspects, or all, of your computer work into The Cloud could really benefit your business or organisation. Once we have agreed how you would like to apply the lessons learned from the Audit, we can formulate a clear Strategy on how to implement the changes and make your move into The Cloud a reality
Migration & Support
Moving into The Cloud means moving software and data online. Instead of having all your programmes and information on local machines, they will now be accessed over the internet from remote servers. It allows your teams to access data from anywhere, share in ways they possibly never imaged, and have access to software that was not available on their laptop or PC before. For some it can be quite a culture shock, and the process of migrating the information and software into The Cloud can impact the organisation if it’s not managed properly. VITS will manage the migration on your behalf for a seamless changeover and then provide the support everyone needs to get up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible.
VITS can provide consultation and advice on a variety of hosted (or Cloud) based services.
We have expertise in migrating existing infrastructure, protecting your data and maximizing up-time in your business. This requires a solution that delivers speed, reliability, simplicity and cost savings.

We provide and support Vmware, the virtualization and cloud computing software for x86-compatible computers. VMWare is a widely-installed operating system for IBM-compatible computers and servers that can host other operating systems in such a way that each operating system behaves as if it were installed on a self-contained computer with its own set of programs and hardware resources.
Ideally suited to Cloud applications, Hyper-V, (formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization) is a native hyper-visor that can create virtual machines on x86-64 systems. Applicable to all systems running Windows 8 and higher, a host server running Hyper-V can be accessed remotely by multiple guest computers. Each guest computer could perform as if they are using the host server directly. Users on the guest computers could run applications in the host server remotely, even though that application is not available on the guest computer.
A private cloud offers the benefits of Cloud Computing, but limits the resource to a single organisation or company. VITS are able to assess your Cloud needs and balance them against the limits you wish to place on the access to, and availability of, your software and data. We can then provide you with exactly the right package of hardware and software to set up and operate your own Private Cloud.
Virtual Private Servers
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) offers all the benefits of moving into the Cloud, with the added security of knowing that your data and software are not running on shared software with other Cloud users. While a virtual private server (VPS) is still running on the larger Cloud servers, it runs its own copy of an operating system, and you have super user-level access to that operating system which allows you to install almost any software that runs on that operating system. You also have the full computing power and memory that a server sized machine can offer.
Dedicated Hosting offers all the benefits of moving into the Cloud, but with the added security of knowing that your data and software are not on a shared server. This is an ideal solution where data security is paramount, or if speed is an issue. If you will be moving large amounts of data in the form of large files, or have a lot of people accessing the server at the same time, then sharing the server can mean your staff spend too much time watching the hour glass while they wait for actions on the screen. As well as offering a much larger volume of memory and better processing speeds, Dedicated Hosting ensures only your traffic is accessing the server and you are never waiting in a queue while some else moves their data in and out of the server.
Cloud Applications allow you to get the very best from moving online, sharing data and allowing everyone in your organisation to use the latest software available.

Google has a powerful suite of applications that are tailor made to run through your Cloud account. By including the applications on the central Cloud server you make them quickly available across your whole organisation.
Cloud Backup & Data Storage
Moving your central data storage and back-ups into The Cloud gives you access to virtually unlimited storage and a degree of multi-level redundancy very few companies can afford. A cornerstone of way the The Cloud has developed is the dispersal of data across multiple locations, while protecting that data with numerous layers of security. This means you can relax knowing your data is safe, whatever happens to any one particular server location, and that you will never run out of storage space. You simply keep expanding and contracting the space you rent in The Cloud to suit the needs of your organisation.
